    Hi Ron,

    My employer has sponsored a PERM petition which received an audit. They have replied to the audit and it's currently being processed by DOL.

    While the previous PERM is being reviewed is it possible to file a new PERM for a more senior position which is more than 50% different? I am hoping that it will result in a faster response from DOL and will also allow further upward mobility for me within the organization.

    Thanks!

    It has to be more than 50% different. Even then, the DOL may hold the new one until the audit is complete.

    Thanks Ron. What if the previous PERM is withdrawn? Is it even possible to withdraw or cancel a PERM petition that is currenty being reviewed? If yes, would it potentially have a bad impact on the new petition?

    Yes, it can be withdrawn.
